friday fun finds : : week two

a rainy friday here in kansas city and pickin's were slim today as far as garage sales go. but i did manage to find a few fun things.

a wood table and chairs for two. how sweet this will look when i paint it white and add some numbers to the chairs. i will post a photo once it is completed. cool, large, (1970's) galvanized bucket. i love the rope handles on the side. there are so many uses for this baby but he is in the 'june sale' pile. *sigh* i just can not keep everything i find....even though i really want too! an oval metal photo frame that will soon become a pretty little cork board. baskets for our may day baskets that need to be made and delivered TODAY! and a cute, red plaid shirt for M that doesn't even look like it was ever worn. i love my boys in plaid and i could not pass it up....Talbots Kids...for a buck twenty five.

This was also a fun find today. a box filled with lots of different games.

i drooled over all these game pieces. the tiny card sets all have adorable vintage images on them. the wooden bingo pieces and the black and white cardboard letters. oooooh the possibilities.
i limited myself today to just a couple of sales. but my goodness i am craving more. hello, my name is kathi, and i am a junkaholic. the reason for my limitations today is to save some money for tomorrow. oh yes, tomorrow...saturday....i am taking my mom (for her mothers day gift) to sparks kansas. home of a fantastic (twice a year) flea market. i doubt i will even be able to sleep tonight. we will be hitting the road early and spending the entire day there junking. i will have photos and a full report here on monday.
